I recently had something of a minor existential breakdown, or experienced the beginning of a big one that I managed to ward off before it got too bad. As a result, I became largely absent from tumblr in general for several days, for my own mental health. Then I had a business conference to attend, which took up the better part of a week.
This means everything got put on hold, from answering questions to working on selecting a new moderator. I apologize, but I wasn’t going to rush the process and pick somebody while under duress and make them deal with the blog while I was off trying to recover some semblance of control in my life. I thought it would be better to let the blog be quiet for a week or two rather than put myself and the new moderator through unnecessary stress.
I will hopefully be back in force after this week, depending on a few situations I’m still dealing with. I will also be looking at the moderator applications again to refresh my memory and hopefully bring somebody on staff.
To those who stood by for the past weeks, I appreciate your patience. To those who sent rather obnoxious asks demanding the blog be more active again, I ask that you view this as a learning opportunity. Take what you can get, but understand that you are owed nothing.
